The Boston Bruins have won nine of their last 10 games, including a four-game win streak, and they’ll look to extend that mark when they host the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden on Saturday night.
The B’s crushed the New York Rangers 6-1 in their last game, and there’s a good chance they could earn another lopsided win against a Sabres team that sits at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings.
Tuukka Rask is expected to start in net for Boston. He hasn’t lost in regulation since Nov. 26, a span of 21 games during which he’s posted a remarkable 19-0-2 record. Rask also has won eight straight games, but he hasn’t played Buffalo this season.
Here are the projected lineups for both teams.
BOSTON BRUINS (33-11-8)
Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–David Pastrnak
Jake DeBrusk–David Krejci–Ryan Spooner
